Good Egg Creative has announced an exciting new charity concert for Sydney, High Stardards, which will be held at the City Recital Hall on Monday 28 October, and raise much needed funds for the Actors Benevolent Fund (ABF) NSW.
High Stardards celebrates the greatest songbook of the 20th century, featuring magnificent tunes from such writers as Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin and Harold Arlen made famous the world over by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole, Nina Simone and many more.

Since 1944 the Actors Benevolent Fund has provided a safety net for entertainment professionals, both past and present and of all ages, giving critical financial help at their time of greatest need. ABF is a registered charity administered by a Management Committee of volunteers primarily from the entertainment industry.
Through compassionate and confidential support, the ABF helps entertainment professionals throughout NSW maintain their health, dignity and ability to work.
